Describe pollination. How many types of pollinations are found?
Pollination is the transfer of pollen grains from the anther to the stigma of the same or another flower.
The male gametes are produced inside pollen grains located in the anthers of androecium whereas the female gametes are produced in the ovules located in the ovary of gynoecium. For forming a zygote, the male gametes need to be transferred to the gynoecium for fusing with the female gametes. This is achieved through pollination. Pollination occurs through insects, wind, or other agents.
There are two types of pollination - Self-pollination, and cross-pollination.
